In rare instances, surgery may be recommended as a treatment for this condition. Generally, this is limited to severe situations where tearing or bone spurring has occurred in or around the tendons. This can occur if the initial injury is particularly severe, or if the condition is left untreated for a very long period of time, causing irreversible damage. When this is the case, conservative treatments have generally been ineffective in providing relief. By consulting with your doctor in a timely fashion, and following the instructions for treatment, surgery for peroneal tendonitis can by avoided in the vast majority of cases.
Long term outlook
Commonly, individuals suffering from pain on the outside of the foot fully recover from their symptoms. However, this recovery time can be prolonged and arduous for some. Preventing re-injury once healing has been achieved is paramount. Strengthening exercises, stretching, and arch support insoles can be of value to avoid further tendon inflammation in the future. As always, never begin any treatment plan for any condition without the supervision and guidance of your physician. SHARE
